A Message From Our Founder
All around the world in each culture and country we have a different term for what we here in Australia call ‘big noting’.
However if done right, I prefer to call it ‘backing yourself’. Some cultures really support the notion of backing yourself, while others label it conceited, blowing your own horn, tooting your own trumpet and many other variations I best not use here. Like it’s a bad thing to do.
But why not do a little self promotion? Backing yourself is really important to help you progress in your career and in business. If you don’t back yourself why should others?
It can be tricky to get right but there are several ways you can do this without appearing arrogant but confident in your own skills and abilities.
- It can be as simple as offering your support and assistance.
- Offer your advice.
- Ask for a recommendation on LinkedIn or give someone else a recommendation and request one in return
- Be confident and have conviction in your opinions. Don’t be afraid to put your views out there and openly justify yourself with your experience and knowledge.
Have confidence in how talented you are because every single person has something amazing to offer. Everyone!
Go out there this month and back yourself, go on!
